About John Paul Tutela

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Paul Tutela continues to elevate the boutique, concierge practice he founded in 2014. Focusing primarily on breast and body cosmetic surgery as well as breast cancer reconstruction, he performs the latest microsurgical techniques, including the DIEP flap.

“My patients receive my cell phone number and have direct access to me at all times,” says Dr. Tutela, a third-generation physician. “The patient experience is focused on making them comfortable during the entire process, from their initial inquiry through recovery. My wonderful staff plays a key role in each patient’s journey.”

Dr. Tutela also performs “mommy makeovers,” which can include tightening abdominal muscles, trimming excess skin, liposuction, and breast lifts. “It truly is a restorative surgery,” he says. “It’s always inspiring and empowering for a woman to give priority to herself after years of going through pregnancy, breastfeeding, and child rearing.” Both he and physician assistant Chelsea Stoll also offer the latest non-surgical injectables, including Botox® and fillers.

According to Dr. Tutela, plastic surgery gives his patients an opportunity to restore a shape to their body that they recognize and that makes them feel good. “In many instances it acts as a reinforcement and continual motivation to perpetuate a healthy lifestyle and to give priority to their body,” he says.
